Web Copywriting Newcastle - making social networking work for you
Thanks to modern technology and the increasing need for convenience among shoppers and those people searching for services and professionals, there has never been a better time for businesses, sole traders and organisations to increase their online presence. For many businesses in the North East, this means implementing and maintaining an effective website that showcases them in the most positive way. One of the most important elements is to have effectual content. Many businesses realise this and turn to professional Web Copywriting Newcastle; however, some miss the opportunity to make the most of their online presence through the increasingly popular forum of social networking.
Turning Web Copywriting Newcastle into your status
Social networking sites can often have a bad reputation, especially when arguments between friends and rivals spill out into the real world. With cyber bullying also on the increase, it's not surprising that much of the UK media now demonises this platform. However, with Facebook having 800 million registered users, Twitter having 175 million and even newer formats, such as GooglePlus, boasting 50 million fans, it is difficult to argue with the prospect of being able to access so many people with such little effort. Many of the most popular business pages on Facebook are quickly able to boast fan numbers in their thousands, and even millions, for some products or organisations. The major social networking sites are free to join and conduct business on, with potential customers accessible at any time of day or night with a simple "status update".
When compared with traditional forms of advertising, such as billboard, television or radio advertising, it would take a large amount of funding to reach such a large and widespread audience as that which can be achieved through social networking.
Many business owners might claim that they simply don't have the time to "sit and play" on the sites, maintaining that this would distract them from their regular work and real advertising, but with the right planning and an effective strategy, even the least enthusiastic of social networkers will quickly see the benefit of getting online.
When used effectively, social media sites can be linked with a company's website and other areas of advertising. In effect, a Facebook page can link to a Twitter feed, which links to a blog, which directs users to a website. Cutting out the middle pieces of the cog, the Facebook page can link to the website or even have a buy-now page, contact information and everything else a customer should need to commit to the services on offer.
Making Web Copywriting Newcastle work for your business
Of course, it is of little value to make the effort to launch an online "offensive" without the necessary preparation. Many businesses have seen poor results after making the leap into social networking too quickly, without laying the foundations that would have enabled them to make their mark on the sites and, at the same time, create a good impression.
